Q11. What is the significance of this abandonment?


It is the moral and legal equivalent of a parent selling its child into slavery. It was the duty of the U.K. as Administering Authority of a Trust Territory to protect the interests of its charge. The U.K. went into great pains to protect the interests of the people of Hongkong, a possession of China, over which it had much less responsibility. More recently, the U.K. intervened with much enthusiasm and moral indignation in Kosovo. Like the U.N., the U.K. continues to look the other way and to pretend that the B.S.C. problem is internal to la Republique du Cameroun.
Q11. What are the consequences of this abandonment?

British Southern
The Trusteeship Agreement was designed by the United Nations to prepare The British Southern Cameroons (BSC) and other Trusteeships for independence and freedom from colonialism. Overiding the wishes of its people for full independence, the U.N. and the UK decided to "grant independence" by attaching the Southern Cameroons to its neighbours? Forty years later, the British Southern Cameroons is a colony, annexed by la Republique du Cameroun and France and its people are struggling anew for independence. The U.N. is looking the other way, waiting for another Rwanda-style genocide before it takes action. The BSC question is the most important blunder of U.N. and U.K. decolonization.

Cameroons And The United Nations

France and its quisling, Ahmadou Ahidjo, President of la Republique du Cameroun saw the chance to annex B.S.C. and immediately grabbed it. In doing so, they completely reneged on all their undertakings (at the U.N.) never to annex B.S.C. Ahidjo later told his party in Ebolowa that there was no birth of a new federation. La Republique du Cameroun simply transformed itself and amended its constitution to begin the process of annexing the B.S.C.
Q11. Do Southern Cameroonians blame the U.N. and the U.K. for their plight?

Both the U.N. and the U.K. showed the same degree of aloofness and nonchalance towards the political development of the B.S.C. Charles de Gaulle's reference of the B.S.C. at its union with la Republique du Cameroun as "un petit cadeau de la Reine" smacks of connivance between the U.K. and France. The absence of both the U.N. and the U.K. at the Fumban Conference amounts to gross negligence. B.S.C. now seeks recognition of its independence which was overwhelmingly approved by the U.N. on April 19 1961, by a vote of 50 yes, 2 no and 9 abstentions. The U.N. has the responsibility to broker the dissolution of the failed union that it imposed on B.S.C. four decades ago.

Q8.Why then was the British Southern Cameroons not granted her independence in accordance with U.N. Article 76?

British Southern Cameroons was self-governing and actively preparing for independence since 1954 Q5. Why did the U.N. establish the Trusteeship Council?

Q2. For what purpose was the United Nations Founded?

A. The U.N. was founded to maintain international peace and security to help bring justice and prosperity to all peoples and nations.
Q3. What declaration did the U.N. make in 1960 concerning colonized countries and peoples?

The U.N. established the Trusteeship Council to supervise the administration of Trust Territories like the Southern Cameroons. Trusteeship territories were colonized countries over which the U.N. had ultimate authority. The administering authority governed the country by proxy for the U.N. Southern Cameroons' administering authority was the U.K.
Q6. Who are the members of the Trusteeship Council?

The administering authority, U.K. misled the U.N. into believing that the Southern Cameroons would be economically non-viable as an independent state. This was not true because the U.K. was aware of commercially significant oil reserves within the international borders of the Southern Cameroons. The reasons for gambling with the freedom of the Southern Cameroons people was ultimately self-serving and had nothing to do with the U.N. prescription to "promote the advancement of the people of the inhabitants of the Trust Territories." According to the values of the U.K. itself, freedom is paramount for any real advancement to occur.
Q9. How can the U.N. correct its error?

The U.N. can correct the error it made and avert further conflict in the two Cameroons by: a) Accepting that the United Nations-imposed union between the two Cameroons has failed and by taking the necessary steps to effect the peaceful separation of the two Cameroons. b) Taking appropriate steps to sanction la Republique du Cameroun for annexing the Southern Cameroons contrary to its own resolution 224-111 of November 18, 1948.
Q10. What decision did the U.N. take concerning the results of the plebiscite it conducted in the Southern Cameroons in 1961?

A. In December 1960 the U.N. declared in Resolution 1514(xv) that the subjection of peoples to colonial subjugation, domination and exploitation constitutes a denial of fundamental human rights...and that "immediate steps shall be taken in Trust and non-self-governing territories...to transfer all powers ot the peoples of those territories without any condition or reservation..." reservation
Q4. What was the status of the British Southern Cameroons at the time of the above declaration?

The members of the Trusteeship Council are the same five who are permanent members of the Security Council i.e. China, France, The Russian Federation, United Kingdom and the United States of America
Q7. What was the objective of the Trusteeship System?

A. From October 1, 1960, the Southern Cameroons was a self-governing U.N. Trust Territory under United Kingdom Administration, no longer governed with the Federation of Nigeria

According to Article 76 of the U.N. Charter, the objective of the Trusteeship System was to promote the advancement of the inhabitants of the Trust Territories and their advancement towards self-government and independence.

The U.N. passed Resolution 1608(xv) directing in paragraph 5 that the Administering Authority(U.K.), the government of the Southern Cameroons, the government of la Republique du Cameroun should meet and finalize before October 1, 1961 the arrangement by which the Southern Cameroons would enter into federation with la Republique du Cameroun. The Southern Cameroons was never party to such a meeting.
